Holy Cross Energy (HCE) needed a solution to enhance internal infrastructure using two-factor authentication and to mature their security for their Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections.
As a not-for-profit, HCE, needed to find a simple, easy-to-deploy, cost-efficient solution for their organization.
Holy Cross Energy (HCE) is a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative utility providing electricity, energy products and services to more than 55,000 consumers in Western Colorado.
HCE, not only has sensitive data and personal information pertaining to their consumers, but due to their power supply agreements and contracts also have access to data through other energy companies, such as the Public Service Company of Colorado and Western Area Power Administration, to name a few.
Holy Cross Energy needed to ensure that their existing infrastructure is secured as best as possible, as they keep in mind the North American Electric Reliability/Critical Infrastructure Protection plan (NERC/CIP), which is a set of requirements designed to secure the assets required for operating an electricity company.
In addition, HCE’s remote workers needing to access corporate servers while on the go, it is no wonder that it was of utmost importance for Holy Cross Energy to find a solution to enhance their security when remote employees log on using their Virtual Private Network (VPN). This way HCE can ensure that their consumers and partners data is never being compromised.
From the security requirements that High Cross Energy laid out, HCE selected LoginTC’s solution based on their experience with LoginTC’s complimentary trial.
“Through an initial trial where we tested the LoginTC solution, we found that it was extremely easy to implement, with comprehensive documentation to help us implement the solution quickly without compromising operational activity,” said Manuel J. Gomez, IT Infrastructure Supervisor of Holy Cross Energy.
HCE was impressed by how easy the LoginTC solution was to implement and how seamlessly it fit into their existing infrastructure. Headaches for administrators like Manuel were few because of the well documented information available online at logintc.com/docs . Having access to well explained proof of concepts and easy to access documentation, made it so that HCE wasn’t waiting to secure their data and were able to deploy fairly quickly.
As HCE was evaluating their decision to deploy the LoginTC Solution across the whole organization, it became obvious that there were no additional hardware required and no hidden costs associated with deploying within their larger network of users making LoginTC the premier choice for Holy Cross Energy.
As with companies, like HCE, who are providing critical infrastructure to a region, it is important that not only are they ensuring consumer’s data is safe but also that their internal services are protected through two-factor authentication.
